Re: Making the move in 2021

When roughly did they enter NZ? Up until just before Christmas MIQ spaces were much easier to get. Now not so much and that will be your main hurdle as you have found.

Re: Making the move in 2021

According to the government, managed isolation facilities have been planned until the middle of 2022. Not to say MIQ will still be around then but I don't think it'll be too far off. I don't think...

Re: A year and a half in New Zealand and still no job

That's a tricky situation, sorry you lost your job 😣

It's probably not super helpful but Timaru is a small place with a bit of a 'it's not what you know it's who you know' vibe when it comes to...

Re: Job offer! Advice re moving please :)

Good luck with the move. Invercargill is an, umm, interesting place! I would use it as a base for seeing the local area but look to move on after a year or so tops. Honestly it is a bit of a dump and...

This is what worries me about an Oz/Nz bubble without quarantine and before a vaccine 😬

Re: Vaccine - NZ strategy?

Or perhaps it's personal choice and has nothing to do with money. Parenthood isn't for everyone πŸ™‚

Re: Anyone Apply for Citizenship?

We applied June 2019, had the ceremony in August 2019, had passports 2/3 weeks after that. Huge backlog at immigration at the moment, big delays with any applications.

We've been here 8 years now. Always enjoyed life in NZ, have absolutely no interest in living in the UK.

Yeah I dunno. I reckon I would rather put up with 'through the nose food prices' and shitty driving standards than contract a potentially lethal virus that could effect me for the rest of my life... 🀷

Re: Coronavirus

Lock downs are bad for the economy but so are sick people. You can't go any where or buy anything when you're sick or worse so it's a bit of a double edged sword economy wise. Look what happened in...

No, you shouldn't be exempt. It's your choice to go on holiday, you don't have to go. Why should the tax payer pick up your quarantine tab when it's a holiday for you and not an essential trip? I...
